Today I have a very interesting smartwatch at a ridiculous price on the review – this is TICWRIS GTS. I first came across the TICWRIS brand and today I will find out what fitness watches are capable of, I will also talk about the main features and disadvantages.
I would like to mention the price of TICWRIS GTS since it is really low – it’s $25.
What will you get for the low cost of the new smartwatch? Let’s go through what the manufacturer will promise. The first is the appearance, which is very similar to the Apple Watch or Amazfit GTS with the same square screen. Also, it is worth noting the presence of an interesting function – this is a temperature measurement in real-time.
This is the first time I’ve come across this function and based on the latest statistics on coronavirus, this function will be interesting to many users. But before you start talking about its work, let’s talk about the appearance and quality of the assembly.
TICWRIS GTS: Specifications
|Screen:||1.3 inch TFT screen with 240 by 240 pixels|
|Sensor:||Real-time Body Temperature, Heart-rate monitor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer|
|IP standart:||IP68 waterproof|

The fitness watch is delivered in a small white box, where on the front part there is a picture of a watch with the name of the model and company.
On the side faces, there are icons with basic functions, and on the back, there are the main technical specs.
Inside the box, there were smartwatches themselves, a charging dock station, and user manual.
The package bundle is pretty standard and you should not expect more, as the price tag for the device is about $25.
As I mentioned, the design of the TICWRIS GTS smartwatch is very much like the Apple Watch. It got the same square screen, but I want to note that the thickness of the case and weight is much less than that of Apple.
For example, the watch’s dimensions were – 35 x 41.5 x 11 mm and a weight of about 40 grams. Therefore, I could wear a watch all day and even sleep in it and did not feel much discomfort.
If we talk about the quality of the assembly, then I have no complaints. The case does not creak and the gaps are set correctly and accurately. The watch uses matte black plastic, which does not leave fingerprints on the case.
On the right side, there is only one power button. The button works with moderate effort and I did not find any play during pressing.
On the back of the watch are charging contacts, two metal plates for measuring temperature, and sensors for measuring heart rate.
The front side of the case received a color touch screen with a size of 1.3 inches with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. The screen uses TFT technology and the screen quality is really good for budget fitness watches.
Of course, when compared with the Apple Watch, the screen quality there is several times better, but do not forget about the price tag.
If we talk about contrast, viewing angles, and brightness, then the TICWRIS GTS has good performance. For example, you can easily read the information on the watch even in bright and sunny weather.
I can also note that the GTS watch received protection against the water of the IP68 standard. This means that the user will be able to dive to a depth of 1.5 meters within half an hour. Therefore, if you take a shower or swim in the pool, then there will be no problems with working capacity.
As for the grille, it looks standard like most fitness bracelets. The strap is removable and its width is 22 mm. Thus, if something happens to the strap, changing it to any other will not be a problem.
In general, as for a budget fitness watch, TICWRIS made me very happy. The build quality is up to standard and the materials used are of good wear-resistant quality.
Functions and Features
Before I talk about the main features, I wanted to share a little about the technical stuffing. TICWRIS GTS is equipped with the Nordic 52832 chipset, which operates at a maximum frequency of 64 MHz. The smartwatch also received 64KB of RAM and 512KB of internal memory.
It may seem that the specification is very primitive, but as the practice has shown, the fitness watch worked quickly and without delay.
The TICWRIS GTS main screen displays a wealth of useful information. For example, this is the battery level, connection, time, day of the week, and date, as well as steps, calories, and distance.
The main watch face can be replaced by another, but there are not many options – only 4. Maybe with a further update, the user will be able to additionally install a different watch faces design.
If you swipe from right to left, we get to the menu with some functions – this is a list of daily activities, such as heart rate, sleep analyte, and a QR code for installing the application on a mobile device.
If you swipe in the opposite direction on the main screen, we get to the main menu with some applications. Here I see bright icons, such as steps, sports modes, sleep, health, music player, stopwatch, notifications, and much more.
In the sports modes section, you can find seven different options and also a story where you can analyze your results.
The health section offers three modes – heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen.
The main and very interesting feature is the new sensor for tracking your body temperature in real-time. Thus, you can easily analyze your body condition using a rather convenient method.
During testing, I found that this function works with a small margin of error. For example, the watch showed my temperature of 36.2 degrees and a regular thermometer of 36.7 degrees.
The remaining features are quite typical for most fitness watches, so I will not focus on them. But I would like to mention the presence of a music player that you can control through your wrist. A very convenient feature and you quickly get used to it.
Like other competitors in the fitness watch, the TICWRIS GTS received a low battery capacity of 160 mAh.
Despite this, the battery life is pretty good – it is 20 days in standby mode or 5 days during active use.
The charging time through the docking station will be approximately 2 hours.
Conclusion and Reviews
After several days of use, the TICWRIS GTS fitness watch has shown its worth. They got many useful features, including a real-time temperature sensor for tracking your body temperature.
I have not seen such a feature before and I think that in the future many Chinese manufacturers will install a similar sensor.
In terms of build quality and the screen, the materials used, I was left with a positive impression since the price tag for the watch is negligible.
